First I wanna say, HUBBY'S BACK! He was gone for a week (I know, I know...it's sooo not a long time, but still, it sucked.) on a business trip and he came back on Saturday! YAY!
And it seems to me that he brought back my creativity with him! I made a little sumthin' sumthin' on Sunday that I am
kinna completely in love with!
I am so excited to share this next tutorial with you. I call it The Rustic Spoon Pendant. Enjoy!
YOU WILL NEED:
- Scrapbook Paper
- Sanding Paper
- Mod Podge
- Acrylic Paint (red, yellow, brown)
- Paint Brush (Small)
- Water (just a bit)
- Paper Towel
- Paper Towel
- FolkArt ClearCote High Shine Glaze (by Plaid)
- Hemp Cord or Leather Cord or Chain - whatever you fancy :)
Sounds like a lot, but I swear to you, this is easy as pie :) And bonus, it's a great way to release stress!
HERE WE GO!
***This is to answer ANONYMOUS' question left on the comments.***
Try using a pair of needle nose pliers. Use the pliers to "pinch" the end of what will be the loop. By twisting your wrist slowly but firmly at the very edge, it should begin to turn in. Failing that, use the pliers to bend down the middle of where the loop will be. When you've manipulated the metal downward, move pliers to the very edge (not the edge that goes into the spoon) and do the wrist twist thing until you get a more round off shape. I hope I was able to articulate that well and that you found it useful! Let me know if you have more questions :)
